For Louise: The Promise
About Robert Jeffery
Robert Jeffery Diduch has a degree in Haute Couture and is the current SVP of Design at Hickey Freeman, The Temple of Fine Tailoring, and had promised Congresswoman Louise Slaughter he would make her a suit - because Hickey Freeman® only makes men's suits. Sadly, she passed before he could fulfill his promise but he proceded anyway, designing and sewing suits in his basement, to ensure all women of distinction would be able to have their own luxury tailored garment.
Jeffery is one of only a handful of designers in the world who can design, sew, and manufacture a tailored suit - every step of the process - all by himself. Fortunately for him, though, he has help, and The Louise Collection is manufactured in the Hickey Freeman Factory in Rochester, NY.
